Urban Planner: October 14, 2008

POLITICS: It’s Federal Election time! Torontoist will be liveblogging the results this evening, so make sure you’ve read up on all of our election coverage in advance. Go vote! Seriously! Various locations (find yours here), 9:30 a.m.–9:30 p.m., FREE.
WORDS: There is another book launch tonight as part of PagesThis Is Not A Reading Series. Fear of Fighting, the new graphic novel by author and Torontoist contributor Stacey May Fowles alongside illustrator Marlena Zuber, follows Marnie, a young Torontonian woman struggling with mental health and the banality of everyday urban living. Fowles and Zuber will both speak at the event, followed by a musical performance from Tomboyfriend. Gladstone Hotel Ballroom (1214 Queen Street West), 7 p.m., FREE.
PARTY: The relatively popular Can-con TV show Rent-A-Goalie will be taking over Yonge-Dundas Square today in celebration of the show’s upcoming season premiere next Monday. There will be interactive games and prizes, an in-line hockey game on an inflatable NHL-sized rink, and autograph sessions with cast members of Rent-A-Goalie alongside former hockey stars Bob Probert and Mike Palmateer. Yonge-Dundas Square, 11 a.m.–6 p.m., FREE.
FILM: The National Film Board of Canada will present the Toronto theatrical premiere of The Museum tonight. The film, directed by Kenton Vaughan, examines the ROM‘s recent renovation process, and the architectural advances (or were they regressions?) made by William Thorsell while creating the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal. Until Thursday. National Film Board (150 John Street), 7 p.m., $6 ($4 for students, seniors, and NFB members).
